Hit effects? Because the trailer looks like the models are hitting thin air and the targets are reacting to imaginary hits...

You need those hit effects you see in japanese anime games, like japanese characters showing that a person was hit etc?

Still, paypal wouldn't cover that until you got a balance of 70 dollars USD or is using a credit card for paypal :P

That's how it works out, it calculates the full pricing first, and decides if said buyer has that maximum payment, THEN add the discount.

Blunt weapons should have a Knockback effect.
Bladed weapons should have a Decapitation effect.

Both of these effect occurs when you attack the head, but with the stronger melee attacks rather than the weaker ones.

And then it starts getting complicated, like Axes, which are bladed weapons but are 2 handed rather than 1 handed like a Machete.

FAIL, I thought of getting section 8 or GTA4 on steam for a discount, but i completely forgot how retarded paypal is... IT CALCULATES YOUR PAYPAL BALANCE TO THE FULL PRICE OF THE GAME (NOT THE DISCOUNT)!!

So now I can't buy anything on steam.
Section 8 values at 49.99 but is slashed to 24.99, has good multiplayer but I get a uneasy feeling in it.
GTA4 seems okay but too cheesy and I have no idea if it even has a good mod community. 29.99 slashed to 7.49...
I can't get either because of damn paypal...

I'm still waiting for the price to be discounted sometime in the future, since I know that once they decided to change the retail version to a game of the year or something, they will temporarily drop the steam price.

Since retail price is 10 dollars more than steam price, I will keep an eye out for it.

If they made a game that wowed people, then people won't be as likely to pirate it. CD-keys for online play has been more successful than DRMs than you'd think.

If the Online aspect was developed good enough to wow the community, then even less people would bother pirating since it disallows them access to a well made online component with a online community...

For example, If Littlebigplanet went PC and Online for example, it would wow many people, and if LBP has a awesome online feature with cd keys, people would more likely buy it anyways because it's such a great game.

I wonder if this game will get some sort of RP-G function, but limited and doesn't affect gameplay so much.

For example:
- All players start off equal and are required to build up their skills in weapon proficiency or stats, and typically RPG elements.

Not sure how customizable the game can be, and it would work much better if it takes it a bit further with the sci-fi, so you have better range of weapon variety and probably armors and clothing.

For example, imaginary guns that looks cool is a good idea to add more variety to the game, but no blasters and energy weapon. For armors, I think it can be possible to create a character that uses heavy armor built like a tanker. Something that looks a bit futuristic but still fits in the modern world works.

Free to play with microtransaction works, and even more so if its a adaptable gameworld.

The only thing about free games with microtransaction, is that it needs to be developed well enough to gain a decent profit, while at the same time caters to the players fairly.

Since this is a shooter, I don't think allowing players to buy better guns with real cash is a good idea, as it ruins the balance of the game.

Maybe some kind of premium service for the game to work? Like getting premium will allow you to do more than a free player but still within the balance aspect.

Premium Ideas:
- Creating a Clan (Free players can join a clan for example, but can't make one)
- Leading Clan battles
etc.

I still prefer the narutimate series... LOL!
It's actually called Ultimate Ninja in USA, and the reason that I liked it is that you get to do quite a lot of things on a 2d plane.

When you put it in 3d plane with melee combat, well that's where it gets complicated...

I wonder if your gonna implement some kind of stunning system so it will prevent players from pulling off the same moves over and over again, and eventually being cheap.

If you put some work in animations though, I think you can put together a melee system that would work out nicely, depending on how it really works out that is.

I like the "Attack and Defend" motion in a melee combat, where a player can't just spam skills to kill his opponents like in WoW or Gunz or some other games where actual player skills and strategy barely made a difference...

It should be nice to be able to string together 3 to 5 hit combos, then effectively stunning your enemy (unless they used a duplication technique). If they blocked your attacks, it puts you in a position where you can be countered, etc, etc....

Isn't it possible to mirror all the models (not including shadows, which is applied separately) so that all the trees are actually redirected from 1 source and is like a "illusion" of a tree?

In reality, if you take a tree and put a mirror next to it, you get to see two trees that's mirrored and reflected.

Then to apply that to the game, you'd have to somehow grab the model and put it in that area, and have it not eat away the fps.

Since it's a "mirrored" object, it should only take up resources for the mirror itself...

And here I am going on into things I don't understand, as the more sense I try to make of what I say the more complex it gets...

The flail would be like the kinds of melee weapons with chargeable attacks. You use right click to hold and spin the flail, and once its at a fast momentum you can do a downward swing to do insane amount of damage.

Left click uses more flail attacks.

Animation needs to be more adjustable, because when players rapidly hit buttons etc, the model's animation will make things look too unrealistic (in terms of movement)...

I wonder if there will be a system that monitors melee attacks, so you can't spam melee all the time and win...

Take a MMO like mabinogi for example, it uses real time combat, with skills that adjusts the system to a rock-paper-scissor kind of combat.

If you use defense on a enemy's normal attack, it does a pseudo stun on the enemy, allowing you to do a combo back at it.

Using a counter will allow you to take a hit, and reflects it back at the attacker. Counter always knocks the opponent down.

Using windmill at the right time will knock down all nearby enemies.

Mabinogi has different kind of stuns:

Knock back - After being hit 3 times in a row.
Knock down - After being hit after a knock back or from a skill.

The only thing about mabinogi's system and this mod's system, is that players are always able to move even after being hit.
The mmo's kind of system makes combat more tactical.

This, people still thinks 50 dollar games are nothing.

Game pricing is a definite problem in the industry because not everyone can afford them while sustaining their current lifestyle. And it doesn't help with the mass majority of the internet thinks it's status quo that everyone has more money than they use.

The keyword is Standards. The game industry probably already foretell the prices increase, and decided to set a standard so any sad sob that buys it will be paying them in bigger chunks of money.

Don't get me started in development cost. Development cost rose because of the standards being higher. It's not expensive because they got uber technology or skills, but because they can and will charge you for it.

Sometimes, there isn't a need to employ a mass 100 employees to release one frikken game! Corporate development has NOTHING on exceptionally skilled indie programmers and game makers. Where it takes 200 to debug a game, and fail, it takes one professional programmer to solve.

Personally for me, I'll pirate what I want, and what determines me paying is what I determine is a sufficient game.

Hmm, it looks like the back but it's actually the front...
Looks like they made the mistake on the model of the feet... Because if that's how it looks like, I have no idea how it holds itself up while being off oriented with it's legs way in the front of it.

Amphibious legs like those, for mechs, usually involves the upper body oriented much further front, and the lower body orienting to the back.

Basically, to my bits of knowledge of physics and how the animation might look like, it will not be able to take giant steps accurately and at a steady pace because of how the legs are formed.

So if you flip the bottom parts around, it will look more like a bi-pedal mech.

It can be improved to have different variations later on.

Say one with a camera overlooking a large area, and from time to time you see some things occuring:
- A squad of marines is seen entering a structure.
- An alien flies overhead, leaving a shadow as it flies.
- several shadows are seen in the horizon, indicating a group of aliens.
- Muzzle flashes are seen far away, in the dark.
- Squad of marines retreating from the structure.

The real ambiance would be set up throughout the environment then, because you can't have one track with sounds in a area that might not make sense, like electrical sounds when there's nothing but pipes, glass, and metal in the area...

You'd wanna create many different generic ambiances for different areas, and have them activate at random when a player comes near, to sync with a main ambiance.

This allows them to have more roles, with the Heavy armor users having to focus completely on defense, parrys, counters, and powerful blows.
